Did the Vatican recognize the Badoglio or RSI Government, and when?

I noticed that in October 1943 the Papal Nuncio to Italy was still in contact with the RSI Government of Mussolini.

At what point did the Vatican's diplomatic recognition switch from the RSI to the Badoglio/Royal government?

Many thanks,

Sid.

I have read a bit more on this. It appears that, following its policy of not recognizing new regimes in time of war, the Vatican did not formally recognize either, but kept links with both.

Cheers,

Sid.
